Tracy Hills DEIR Notice of Availability - 10 15 2015

Posted: Oct 14, 2015




October 13, 2015


The City of Tracy has prepared a Recirculated Draft Subsequent Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the Tracy Hills Specific Plan Project, pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and the CEQA Guidelines. The City of Tracy previously prepared a Draft Subsequent EIR which was circulated for public review from December 23, 2014 through March 3, 2015. Following the close of the public comment period, both the City of Tracy and Project Applicant completed additional technical analysis for the project. Although the additional technical analysis did not result in new, significant impacts than what was previously identified in the December 23, 2014 Draft SEIR, it has resulted in the impacts that can only be partially mitigated, and as a result, will remain significant and unavoidable. As a result, the City has elected to recirculate the Draft SEIR in its entirety for an additional 45 days of public review and comment.


The Project includes a comprehensive update to the previously adopted 1998 Tracy Hills Specific Plan (“THSP”).  The 1998 THSP established land use and development standards for approximately 2,732 acres located near the existing interchange around Corral Hollow Road and the proposed Lammers Road interchange on Interstate 580.  The current THSP Project Area consists of the incorporated portion of the 1998 THSP, which is the approximately 2,732 acres described here.


The Applicant has requested certain modifications to the 1998 THSP which would require formal amendments.  Because the proposed text modifications (including the Project goals, zoning and development standards, and zoning districts), graphics and format to the previously approved Tracy Hills Specific Plan are substantial, the applicant, in consultation with City Staff, has decided to submit a comprehensive update to the Specific Plan as opposed to submitting amendments to sections of the 1998 THSP.


The comprehensive update to the THSP also makes necessary modifications to bring the 1998 THSP Plan into consistency and compliance with the City’s updated Infrastructure Master Plans and the General Plan.  The Project would involve the adoption of a General Plan Amendment and the amendment of the 1998 Tracy Hills Specific Plan  in the form of the comprehensive update to the 1998 THSP; the approval and implementation of a development agreement(s); approval of  a  vesting tentative map application for Phase 1a; approval of the Tracy Hills Storm Drainage Master Plan; subsequent implementation of the THSP including subdivision maps, improvement plans and building permits, and other development within the THSP Project Area consistent with the standards specified within the THSP. 


A 45-day public review period for the Recirculated Draft SEIR will commence on October 15, 2015 and end on December 3, 2015. The City has elected to extend the review period to 50 days given that the 45-day public review period falls within the end of a holiday weekend. Members of the public and other



interested agencies and individuals are invited to provide comments on the Recirculated Draft SEIR. The City will respond to all comments received on the Recirculated Draft SEIR. Comments on the Recirculated Draft SEIR may be submitted to the City at the address below during the 45 day review period. Additionally, the Tracy Planning Commission will conduct a public hearing on November 18, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. to receive comments on the Recirculated Draft SEIR. The Tracy Planning Commission meets in the City Hall Council Chambers located at 333 Civic Center Plaza, Tracy, CA 95376.


The Recirculated Draft SEIR is available on the City’s web site

 (www.ci.tracy.ca.us/?navid=595) and at the City of Tracy’s Development Services Department, 333 Civic Center Plaza. The Recirculated Draft SEIR is also available at the Tracy Branch Library located at 20 East Eaton Ave, Tracy, CA 95376.
